We have been married since 1994 and have six children. In April 2007 we came into contact with the work of Youth With A Mission in Cyprus. Cyprus is more than a paradise in the Mediterranean, because it has a strategic position in geographical and spiritual terms. The island is divided into the “Republic of Cyprus” and the “Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus”, the latter not being recognised internationally. While Cyprus politically is part of Europe, it is in the 10/40 window and geographically lies in the Middle East. It is a country which suffers from this division and needs reconciliation, as well as being a springboard for mission in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
Since the beginning of 2009 we are working with YWAM Lanrnaka and co-founded the "Living Stones House of Prayer“, which Jörn has been co-leading since the end of 2009. The vision for the House of Prayer is to be a place of God’s presence and an “engine room” for other ministries. Our team is also involved in training, outreaches with art and works against human trafficking. Our long-term plan is to connect a conference center, a meeting place and a mission station for sending others to the Middle East with the House of Prayer, and to multiply our work nationally and internationally.
Since autumn of 2014, Jörn has also been a member of the national leadership team of YWAM Cyprus.
